Quote
I ran a company, but I was working every day. I had money, but I didnít have time to play in the sea. So I sold my company; I sold my car; I sold my boat. I left my apartment, and I found someone to take care of my dog.

I traveled one year with just my backpack and my camera. I started to publish my story in diving magazines, and it went from there. For three or four years now, I have been doing only diving, spending all my time in water and with nature.

Great article, thanks for sharing!
We are two former teachers who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, and now travel the world full time with a kid.
If you want to know more about me, or how we did that, or see lots of pictures, this Business Insider profile tells our story pretty well.
We (occasionally) blog at AdventuringAlong.com.
You can also read my forum "Journal."

Give me one fine day of plain sailing weather and I can mess up anything.
